I've learned to cross stitch because of my Mom. She gave me a kit as a birthday gift and I had to learn it so that her gift will not go to waste. I am now forever grateful to her for this talent I have discovered.
Here are some of the stuff I've finished over the years (mind you, I started stitching in 1995) ..
This, I believe was the first big one I finished. It was all because of the blue eyes. Gotta love eyes like that even in a cat ... its a siamese cat bdw.
It wasn't so hard to finsih as well except for the face part which made me swear a lot. =p
And because of this, I promised myself that one day, I will have a cat just like this. I.want.it.
This one was quite easy to make .. .took me a week if I remember it correctly. Made this for my twin brothers. It's still hanging in their room up to now eventhough they are no longer kids and are actually capable of making one of their own (God forbid!)
This one, the Madonna and Child was made for my Mom. She's turned into another religion now but she still keeps it which makes me very happy.
